Monsters on the beach

In Uncategorized on November 29, 2011 at 07:27

…We spent most time walking along beautiful beaches and building sandcastles with kids. Everything was perfect, except dogs. Several times a day a real monstrosity (e.g. Rottweiler or German sheep dog) would run to us scarring everybody to death. Then in a few minutes relaxed owners would appear and we would be lucky if they say something like “he won’t bite”. No apologies for the fright, spoiled clothes and ruined sandcastles. I’ve actually seen (in the past) some dog owners who enjoyed scarring people with they “pets”. Anyway, I think all dogs should either be on a lead or wear a muzzle when out of their owners garden. Even at home, there are stories of small children being killed by family dogs appearing on the news all the time. They are animals and predators, after all. And that horrible mess they live on the streets and in the parks… No, its not that I hate the dogs, not at all, its just would be so much better if some owners been more responsible. Sometimes you can see notices “no dogs on this beach” but it seems that lots of people do not really care…

Poor doggy

Once Kids were watching children’s channel CBBC:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gnskf The program was about designing an outfit for a dog… And the winner proposed to put MP3 player and loudspeakers onto it. And NOBODY mentioned that it probably would damage dogs hearing as its much more sensitive than ours and generally may make the pet very uncomfortable. So the moral was: 1)Its fine to have you music on loudly on the street; 2) it doesn’t matter that a pet is alive, its just a cool gadget… And that’s taxpayer-sponsored channel for you…

A word about animal research

In Uncategorized on September 18, 2011 at 07:45

I think the animal rights people should opt out of the National Health Service and stop using all medicines which were developed using tests on animals (and that should be marked on the packaging). That would be really honest. Scientists don’t want to torture animals. They want to save human (and animal) lives. Human lives in my opinion, are of higher priority than animal ones – because we are intelligent beings and could consciously care for other species. Of course, torturing is bad. Even if kids are torturing a dolly it is bad because the crime is in the mind.

No good scientist would want to make animals suffer unnecessary. Do animals suffer? I think, somebody wrote that if you can’t understand “I am (suffering)” you can’t really suffer, as humans do. Well, that’s a point of view. I often think that cats and dogs are suffering living in cities and towns and really should be kept only at the countryside where they don’t get run over by cars so often & don’t stay in little dirty pens all the time, they have good natural supply of herbs & maybe allowed to hunt (they are hunters after all!), plus can run as much as they want.

Who is really an animal torturers, in my opinion, its creators of wild nature films & programs, who watch and film animals (especially little ones!) suffer and do nothing about this for the sake of a realistic picture. Obviously we can’t stop all the animals dying or hurting each other but it doesn’t mean that in some cases we shouldn’t try.

Instead of sabotaging research and by this harming lives (both animal and human), the animal rights activists should sponsor the research to gradually reduce and eliminate animal’s suffering. Full stop.
